The Power of Empathy: Q&A with Emily Bazelon

And empathy can be taught?
Maybe the better way to say this is that empathy can be inspired. But it can also really be concretely discussed and I actually think storytelling is a tremendously powerful vehicle for this. So in my house with my boys (10 and 13), we have used books like Wonder by R.J. Palacio, or Moon Over Manifest by Claire Vanderpoole where you have characters who are different from my kids, and they’re going through different challenges, but my kids are so drawn to the stories that they can really imagine what the world is like from those characters’ eyes, and really come to value their feelings and emotions. And we ask a lot of questions about why certain things have happened in those books, and why people behave the way they do, and I think this does foster empathy in kids.]
